Christie greeted by boos in Paterson

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie was confronted at an event in Paterson by school employees protesting his public education policy.

The Republican was in the city to swear in Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres, who was elected last month.

Several dozen school district workers protested Christie’s appearance, taking aim at the state’s control of the district and chanting “Christie’s got to go.”

Educators have had a testy relationship with the governor, who cut school funding in his first year in office and pushed for changes to tenure laws.

The Record (http://bit.ly/1rUBq05 ) reports the audience was told Christie would give a speech. But Christie’s office says he was not listed as a speaker.

Christie said he was happy to celebrate the Torres, saying “he’s the guy you want to hear from today.”
